OUR MEMBERS ON THE BENEFITS OF BELONGING

RobbinJorgensen

If you are a professional coach in the Atlanta area, then you need to be a part of ICF Georgia. Continually improving our skills and deepening our learning makes us better coaches and ICF GA is a great place to do just that! Beyond that, the networking and potential partnerships that occur at each meeting are invaluable. It’s a great way to stay connected to what’s going on in the coaching community!

Tonypic

Many in our Georgia coach community and beyond have heard me say: “If you want to be a goldfish, swim in a goldfish bowl. If you want to be a professional coach, participate in your community of professional coaches.” For me, it even goes beyond that. It is your responsibility to participate in your professional community. That’s what the ICF GA chapter provides: a professional community of coaches where you learn together, grow together, support each other and advance our profession through the power of community. Welcome aboard!

If you want to be the best in coaching, you have to surround yourself around the best coaches. That’s why I joined the ICF Georgia chapter. ICF Georgia provides a warm and friendly atmosphere to grow and develop your coaching expertise. As a member, you will have an opportunity to grow your business, professional skills, meet coaches who are doing what you aspire to do, and “give back” to the community. Coaching changes lives. And, being a member of ICF Georgia will change your life.
